, alex. >> let's talk about the new nbc poll which shows a positive for president obama. 68% approve of his handling of hurricane sandy. only 15% the other way. with your experience with hurricane katrina, will that go through tuesday? >> it looks like it will go through tuesday. it's a big boost for president obama. he got the opportunity once again to operate in a crisis mode and got very high thumbs up from everybody, including republican governor, conservative governor chris christie. i think mitt romney made a terrible mistake. many people in the republican party are beating up on christie for being too warm or something, too kind to president obama. i think mitt romney made a mistake of not acting more presidential. calling republican governors and mobilizing people to bring supplies in. and taking more -- be positive about president obama. americans aren't voting a political leader. they are looking for a leader. >> you wrote mitt romney ought to have said i'm 100% behind this president. we're americans right now. his leadership is important for the country. how would you sell th

presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the company's hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> president obama has a frenetic campaign today straight through election day today, alex. he will make stops in wisc

go to battleground ohio. a new poll. it shows president obama in the lead, 56 to 46%. here's one of mr. romney's biggest supporters. >> i feel pressure in that way. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to think we'll win the national debate. >> henry, let's talk about the ground game in ohio. who has the advantage? >> it's tough to say at this point. the obama campaign never left after 2008. they like to tell us that. they like to remind us of that. the romney campaign has been on the ground since the primary was over probably in april. they had a lot of catching up to do. they are stressing their door knocking capabilities. they've knocked on over a million doors in ohio. it's tough to say. the obama campaign has a superior ground game. they were heavily involved in a ballot issue a year ago. that was seen as a scrimmage for 2012. and right now we're just waiting to see who's turning out the early vote fast enough. >> but it seems like president obama has the sense there, that's what experts say. we just talked to michael mcdonald. it seems that way. do you think it's the thing that ha

poll from cnn/orc. it shows president obama still ahead by four points there in the buckeye state. what are the president's campaign advisers saying about that? is it too close for comfort or are they confident or -- >> sure. i think they're cautiously optimistic. they have done polls, have been poll testing in ohio, and i think that they feel good about where they are. but you know, he's going to be spending -- the president's going to be spending a lot of time in the next eight days there. he's going to be there with bill clinton on monday and i expect him to be back there relatively soon after that. i think he's going to basically be bunking there all week. >> yeah, good point. what about you, steve? the ohio poll showing the president is winning over about six in ten early voters. but he's losing the election day voters, 61% to 44% for mitt romney. so the romney campaign says the president's peaking too soon. do you have a read on the ground there, what's going on? >> well, i mean, the ground game is fascinating there. the president has about three times as many field offices

florida is more likely to tip into obama' side, but there are big differences in these polls. some of the more local polls in florida have put romney ahead. i think it's still a nail biter in florida. could go either way. but it's for sure romney's need to win state. >> okay, pennsylvania now with you, perry. the romney camp appears to be making a play for that state, spending about $10 million in ad right now. mitt romney is adding a stop there tomorrow. paul ryan will be there today. there are a lot of theories on why his camp is doing this. what's your take, perry? >> my theory is they're struggling in ohio so much they have to try to make a play somewhere else. the president probably can't win the elections without winning pennsylvania. that said he's been leading in every poll in pennsylvania throughout this race. romney hasn't campaigned in pennsylvania up until now. last ditch effort a little desperate i think. but it shows you the challenge they're having in ohio where the president has maintained the lead throughout this race and no republican has ever won without winning

now. the latest nbc news poll shows increasingly tight race between mitt romney and president obama in the state of colorado. in the past month the president has lost his five point lead and tied with governor romney. colorado has become a key battle ground state with much of the focus on its growing hispanic population. joining me is chris hubbard editorial director for the denver post. chris thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> let's talk about your paper which has endorsed the president. first up why did you do that? >> we took a long look at all of the issues. obviously like many voters do, the economy is the number one issue for us in looking at what the federal government needs to do about balancing its budget and the federal debt, we felt like a plan that balances spending cuts and revenue increases is the best way to go. and the obama plan that's on the record does a better job of that in the eyes of the editorial board. we also align more with the president's positions on things like energy and a balanced approach to energy that includes renewable and fossi
